We are featuring Cantate Youth Choir in our Close-Up series.
Name of Project: Stortford Sings for Friday Afternoons
Name of Group: Cantate Youth Choir
Date: 21st March 2016
Venue: Rhodes Arts Complex
Cantate Youth Choir were one of the Friday Afternoons Project Fund groups for 2015-16. As part of their project they invited local primary schools, Manuden and Northgate, to join their Training Choir (and newly formed Trainers Choir) to have a day of singing with a culmination event for their parents to come along to in the evening. The students sang some of Nico Muhly's songs as well as some of Benjamin Britten's original music. Students also played specially written percussion pieces that were inspired by Robert Louis Stevenson's poetry. The concert was completely full, and a great success. Well done to everyone involved!
